Longtime Glassboro resident Maureen St. John shares her memories attending Glassboro State College as an art student, meeting her husband Donald St. John, and the kindness and joy she experienced while living in Glassboro. Maureen also shares a poignant story on how the community and Rowan University helped her in her time of need.
This oral history was created for the Glassboro Memory Mapping Project, a collaborative digital scholarship project exploring cultural and historical geography, public history, memory, and placemaking in Glassboro, New Jersey. The project is being developed through an innovative partnership between Rowan University’s Cultural Geography Honors Course, Rowan University Libraries Digital Scholarship Center (DSC), the Glassboro Historical Society, and the Heritage Glass Museum.
